The 1869 Society is a corporate giving society with businesses of all sizes that are committed philanthropic supporters of the greatest areas of need for Purdue Athletics. Join us as one of the first 1,869 participants to be considered a Founding Member.
University enrollment is at an all-time high of 46,114 students, and Purdue Athletics has been one of the primary drivers of its growth and popularity. Annually, approximately one million alumni, fans, and friends spend time in athletic venues. In order to continue this legacy, we have created this society to engage corporations both philanthropically as well as in a way that assists with the development of Purdue student-athletes beyond their time on campus.
Make an investment of $5,000 or more to impact the lives of the student-athletes you cheer on, see as role models, and may hire one day. By doing so, you will receive a variety of associated benefits outlined below. A key benefit to consider is the ability to participate in the annual 1869 Society Leadership Summit.
